That Christopher Walken plays a mortician is just great casting. That he puts the fun in funeral makes ''Betty'' the July curiosity piece. While producing his Vegas-style send-offs, Walken manages to discombobulate a rival mortician (Alfred Molina) secretly pining for the title character, Betty (Brenda Blethyn).
